Andreas Aleman "Home For Christmas"


After two successful solo albums, there is no doubt that Andreas Aleman is the preeminent soul singer in Sweden and a world-class performing artist. He has performed with the acclaimed band, Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, had sold out shows at the world-renowned jazz club, Fasching, in Stockholm, and toured in Sweden, Germany and Denmark. With his first two albums, THIS IS LIFE & IT’S THE JOURNEY, Andreas Aleman proved that he had the voice, the songs and the grooves to make him recognized as one of Sweden’s most soulful artists. And now comes one of the funkiest, most soulful and heartfelt Christmas albums in recent history.

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS features some of the very best musicians in Scandinavia and two incredible guest artists. And what makes this album special is that not only is it a Christmas album, it is a Christmas album with all original songs.

“When Brian (co-writer, Brian Hobbs) and I sat down and started thinking about this album we decided early on, that even though we love the old Christmas standards, we wanted to do something new, something original. So that’s what we did,” says Andreas.

The album has something for everyone; funk and soul, gospel, ballads, duets, latin and blues. With HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, Andreas Aleman continues his journey by giving us great songs, first-class productions, great arrangements and his unique style of vocals and playing.

If you want a new soundtrack for the holidays, this is the album for you; a great way to say Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

"Christmas Albums isn't usually my cup of tea, listening to the same themes again and again. But Andreas Aleman's "Home for Christmas" offers 10 brand new original songs in the perfect Christmas atmosphere with the great groove, music and vocals heard on the 2 previous records by this talented artist. A must have to end 2014 and start a new year with smile!" Arnaud Leger

The LSB Experience "The Experience"


In the summer of 2010 Marcel Luntungan, Hans Sligter and Sjoerd van den Broek performed together for the first time during an open mic session in grandcafe "Sparkling" in Hilversum, The Netherlands. These three men being good singers individually and holding a respectable track record as musicians in various bands and projects was already a known fact, but this spontaneous joint action appears to be a classic example of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. And so a new band arises; The LSB Experience. A binding factor and an important musical inspiration for the new band is the American so called “West Coast Sound". Several British acts that are known for using rich harmony vocal arrangements also form a common passion.

The LSB Experience setlist now includes songs from: Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, The Eagles, Venice, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles and Crowded House, to mention just a few names. Obviously, the repertoire is still expanding with covers and original material. While the original trio formation is more focused on the harmony vocals and acoustic guitars, the LSB Experience also appears with a rhythm section. This 5-piece band, with on drums Peter Deiman and on bass Rob Hendriks, shifts toward the more dynamic, arranged and swinging songs within the repertoire, thus creating an even greater variation in the sound and making the band more versatile.

It was because of the fans, that The LSB Experience decided to record their own material. In 2014 the album "The Experience" was recorded in the Bamboo Room of Dutch sound engineer/producer Erwin Musper, who has worked with Anouk, Def Leppard, The Scorpions, Van Halen, Bon Jovi.

The result is a beautiful, melancholic music album containing 15 original songs.

On November 22, The LSB Experience did a special preview of "The Experience" for their fundraisers.
The album was received beyound their expectations. The official release of the album "The Experience" is on December 17 2014

The album will soon be available for sale during shows and online. The official kick-off of the promotion tour will be on January 9, 2015 in Paradiso Amsterdam.

Revolution Saints


Featuring Doug Aldrich (ex-Whitesnake), Jack Blades (Night Ranger), Deen Castronovo (Journey) and with special guests Alessandro Del Vecchio, Journey’s Neal Schon and Arnel Pineda


Released on CD, Deluxe Edition w/ bonus DVD, Digital Download and 180 gram black vinyl

European release by Frontiers Records - Friday 20 February 2015; US release: Tuesday 24 February 2015

Deen Castronovo, Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich. Put these three rock titans together in a band and you have the exciting new hard rock/melodic rock supergroup REVOLUTION SAINTS.

 Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English and more, Deen's excellent vocal talents are in the spotlight on this release. On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases. On guitar, Doug Aldrich was excited to lend his fiery blues guitar attack to such a unique and melodic band. Doug, who just left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010s critically acclaimed "Forevermore" release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected guitarists.

You can tell by the name - and the names involved - that REVOLUTION SAINTS isn’t your average rock 'n roll band. The new album brings back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be: inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. It’s completely badass.

The project is the vision of Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist.

Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino. 

With production overseen by in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio (who also contributed to the songwriting and played keyboards on the album), the recording process took place in Portland, Oregon during the summer of 2014.

REVOLUTION SAINTS' music is played with a heart and soul and that highlights the passion and the enthusiasm of three of the best rock and all-around musicians in the game today. Truly, this will be a release that you cannot afford to miss. Lovers of melodic rock will fall in love all over again with REVOLUTION SAINTS.

Care Of Night "Connected"


When Swedish Heavy Metal band Seven Tears disbanded in 2009, three of the members, Kristofer von Wachenfeldt (keyboards), Jonathan Carlemar (guitars) and Fredrik Lager (bass) wished to carry on their musical endeavours. Linus Svensson (drums) and Carl-Johan “Calle” Schönberg (vocals) rehearsed with the band way back in 2010, and eventually Linus became the band’s drummer. Singer Jens Andersson later joined the band and thus was the first line-up of CARE OF NIGHT complete. The band nicked their name from a poetry by Swedish poet Bruno K. Öijer, did some local shows and recorded two songs for a digital release.

In 2013, the band once again transformed as Fredrik and Jens both left the band. Jonas Rosengren became the new bass player while the Swedes still were in need of a lead vocalist. Calle Schönberg decided to join them permanently and completed the second and latest line-up of CARE OF NIGHT. Erik & Anders Wigelius (from Wigelius-fame) agreed to produce and mix a 4-song E.P. in 2013. The songs showcased the band’s song-writing abilities and with a powerhouse production, the E.P. became recognised and appreciated from fans of AOR/Melodic Rock around the globe at the Autumn of 2013.

CARE OF NIGHT once again turned to the Wigelius brothers to record their debut album “Connected” and signed a deal with AOR HEAVEN for a January 2015 release. The band is ready to serve a slice of sparkling hi-tech melodies, with amazing vocalist Calle Schönberg at the front.
